Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting in the air. Brightly colored lights of blue, red, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. You love catching up with your family members as your grandchildren dance, sing and play.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
Throughout the year, you spend as much time with family and friends as you can but it’s special when the holidays are here. Every second is precious.
But the voices of the people talking around you frequently get lost under the din of background noise. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
As the conversation goes on, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. After they finish speaking, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family celebrates, the noise in the room gets louder.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You didn’t catch what your niece said. What just happened?
You want to take somebody aside and learn what you missed. It seems as if it was an important announcement. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
It just isn’t the same when someone has to repeat it. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.
You discover later, after everyone else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re coping with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Preparing For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that memorable meal and getting presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re decorating your home and planning out zoom calls. All of this is worthwhile.
But it’s not as important as making sure that you get to enjoy this holiday with friends and family without missing out on the conversation.
You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Wait – Here’s Why
We can immediately offer appropriate solutions even if you only have moderate hearing loss.
Whatever you may be doing during the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background sound, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone as well.
It’s always better to begin early. Some hearing solutions take a little time to get used to. This will make sure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to gather. Do not miss a moment of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Remain in the loop this holiday. Call us for a hearing assessment.
